Charming Home of the Week: an artist retreat.

By
Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

3820 Thoroughbred Lane is as charming of a home as it gets! The original farmhouse was built in 1810 with parts dating back to 1736... notice the half-timbered wall in the kitchen? It's reminiscent of old German architecture and not a detail you'll find in any modern clononial

Two 3-story additions expanded the living space in this unique home to more than 4,000 square feet to include 2 owner's suites and 3 secondary bedrooms, an art studio and media room, adding more features (a spiral staircase) and modern amenities (walk-in closets) without taking away from its original old world character exemplified by the multiple fireplaces, hardwood floors, pocket doors, and that gorgeous kitchen wall.   

This home sits back off the road, on a private 1 acre lot with mature trees that are just about to show off their fall glory! It has so much room inside and out, and so many possibilities. I personally like the sound of retreat and would love to see it become just that for the future owner(s).

3820 Thoroughbred Lane is FOR SALE. It's listed by Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 Home Rome Realty and shown by appointment only. 

If this property tugs on your heartstrings, too, and if it could just be the charming and unique home you've been searching for, then call for more information and to schedule a private showing.

3820 Thoroughbred Ln, Owings Mills, MD

It's always been the vintage, the old house charm and the original details that I adore the most, that draw me in, make my [REALTOR®] heart flutter, and prompt me to pause, to listen, and then to retell their stories. I specialize in finding and marketing charming homes that are unique and rich in character, or history, or both. I believe in preservation, second chances, saving the pink bathrooms, and front porch living. In this series I highlight charming homes that I am listing to find just the right buyer for or I am admiring with my special clients; or that have simply caught my eye while exploring the [historic] communities of Maryland and [far] beyond. Adore charming homes as much as I do? Then I'd love it if you'd follow me on Instagram, @onceuponahaus is where I grow my curated collection. ♥

Such a cool-looking home.  I am not an artist at all but I think I would enjoy being able to call that place home.

I agree with you Grant Schneider, it has a lovely ring to it and adds to the appeal. Who wouldn't love to live on Thoroughbred Lane?

Hello Andrea - that is quite the history of this home in Owings Mills Maryland and the street name adds to the feeling of a time that appears more genteel.

It is a special place to call home Brian England. There's an art studio with great lighting, but with all the space inside and out, there are so many other possibilities besides an artist retreat. It could be the ideal home for a blended family, or a multi-gen household, too.

Good morning Andrea. If it is listed by Margaret Rome, sold is just around the corner. Enjoy your day.

It sure does Michael Jacobs. I'd love to dig deeper into its history. I am assuming that there's some connection to the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

What a house! I've always loved the older homes; they typically have such unique nooks and crannies. And I get a kick out of wondering who lived there when it was built, and how they lived....  Older homes like this one get my imagination going!

I'll bet this will have a "too late" sign soon!

That's why I wanted to share it with my circles Wayne Martin, so anyone who appreciates charm and history doesn't miss out on it! Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 will place a TOO LATE sign on it before too long, I am sure!

It gets my imagination going, too, Kat Palmiotti, I'd love to travel back in time and get a glimpse of this property when it was "just" a farmhouse for example. If walls could talk, I'd sit there forever with my cup of tea and listen!
